BSCKids: Tell us a bit about how you got the role on Emily’s Wonder Lab?
Sky Alexis: Well, I got the audition for Emily’s Wonder Lab and I was called in that day. In the audition I went in and we talked about science. I was in a science class at school that I was really enjoying at the time so I felt like we had a lot to talk about. I think science is really fun! There were a few steps to booking the show and I didn’t find out until about a month later that I actually booked it.
What has been your favorite part of working on the show so far?
My absolute favorite part of Emily’s Wonder Lab so far was walking on Oobleck. It was the coolest, most amazing feeling in the world. I felt like it was really hard to lift my feet and we had to move really fast so we didn’t sink. We also got to do a dance off in the Oobleck.
Do you find voice work like you did on Bubble Guppies or live action work to be harder?
They’re both enjoyable in different ways. I loved working and being with my team of friends everyday on Emily’s Wonder Lab and getting to do new things. For voice over characters and Bubble Guppies, it’s really fun to give a character life and give them personality.
Tell us something people would be surprised to learn about you?
I think people would be surprised to know I love soup and my favorite thing to do on set when I’m not taping is origami. I also played a lot of Uno on the set of Emily’s Wonder Lab!
If you could guest star on another Netflix show which one would it be and why?
I would love to guest star on the show Alexa and Katie. It is my favorite show. I’ve watched every season… three times.
What is your favorite Instagram post of yours and why?
Oh gosh, that is hard. I actually have two. One post is from when I was taping Let Us In, a movie that comes out later this year. I got to film in a cave and it was a really fun and interesting place to work. We took a picture as I was leaving set and it looks like I am actually walking on air. The second favorite post of mine was from the red carpet movie premiere of Klaus. I voiced Ellingboe Girl 2. It was so amazing to walk down that carpet.
Why should everyone tune in to watch Emily’s Wonder Lab?
Well it’s so FUN!! I hope you’ll laugh and learn a lot!
Thanks to Sky Alexis for taking the time out to speak with us!
